A GL(3) Kuznetsov Trace Formula and the Distribution of Fourier Coefficients of Maass Forms

Guerreiro, João Leitão

We study the problem of the distribution of certain GL(3) Maass forms, namely, we obtain a Weyl’s law type result that characterizes the distribution of their eigenvalues, and an orthogonality relation for the Fourier coefficients of these Maass forms. The approach relies on a Kuznetsov trace formula on GL(3) and on the inversion formula for the Lebedev-Whittaker transform. The family of Maass forms being studied has zero density in the set of all GL(3) Maass forms and contains all self-dual forms. The self-dual forms on GL(3) can also be realised as symmetric square lifts of GL(2) Maass forms by the work of Gelbart-Jacquet. Furthermore, we also establish an explicit inversion formula for the Lebedev-Whittaker transform, in the nonarchimedean case, with a view to applications.
